a baby boy to love.

i've been MIA in blog world for a while but i have been spending my time enjoying my new role as a mama. i never could have imagined what it would be like and how i could feel but these past 8 weeks have been amazing. there have been some challenges (breastfeeding is hard) and i'm slowly learning how to function with much less sleep but i wouldn't change a thing. the joy that this little boy has brought to jason and i (and the rest of our family) is incredible! it's hard to believe that this coming wednesday he will be two months old! time is flying by! i am enjoying watching him grow and change. he has recently started smiling (real, not gas smiles) and they melt my heart. he also loves to talk and try and laugh at his daddy. and he is very busy. when he's not sleeping he has to be moving. he holds his head up very well now. i think he also thinks he wants to crawl. when we put him down for "tummy time" he pulls his little legs up under him and tries to push with his feet. i have a feeling he is going to be very active as he gets bigger. his 2 month check-up is friday and i can't wait to see how much he's grown. 
jason and i plan to take some "real" pictures of him soon, but until then here and a few from my phone over the past few weeks. (it's sad that so far most of his life has been documented on iphones but hopefully that will change.)
we have discovered he prefers to sleep on his tummy.

 mohawk :)
 here's a video of him trying to "crawl"

Shhh... don't tell the government, but both my girls slept on their tummies as babies! Moms know best!
